Lucky people.😤😭
My NBC just stuck some argumentive old creep on over top of it, whining about something Trump did.
Oh, that's wonderful. I will only miss the first half hour.
Maybe I can borrow the neighbor's bulldog's chew bone till it's over.
Naah, he's using it.

Yeah, yesterday they were showing rugby before and I watched the last minutes of the game while waiting for the races to come on. They showed about 3 minutes worth before the channel went out and I missed half the Futurity lead up and the before race because of a white screen.

At least I got that though instead of the same people crying over the same stuff.

Yeah, I could probably watch the same whining on 3 channels on this lousy cable company.

Anyone know why Jerry Bailey wasn't on either of the broadcasts?

Pletcher is uncertain if Sombeyay will run in the BC Juvenile after he was banged up in the Claiborne Breeder's Futurity. Colt will remain at Keeneland for now.
Bloodhorse today.

Enable (GB) is expected to contest the BC, but L'Arc runner up Sea of Class (IRE) is to be put away for the year, according to TDN Europe,

I have a question about the Breeders' Cup. A shower thought, if you will.

Say a juvenile filly wanted to enter the boys' Juvenile. Is that allowed, or is it restricted?

The BC Juvenile isn't really called the Boy's Juvenile; it's just plain Juvenile. If someone wanted to run a very good filly in there, I don't think it's against the rules. :?

Oh yes I know, I just called it that to differentiate, and because I didn't know if it was "restricted".

I understood what you meant, and why you said 'boys'. Sorry, I should have worded my response better. :oops:

It is restricted to colts and geldings. The same with the BC Juvenile Turf.

Thanks for the correction.
It's interesting that the Breeders' Cup has restricted those races, since it's not like two-year-old fillies aren't competitive with their male peers. Maybe the BC didn't want to have a situation where ALL the juvy races ended up being won by the girls? :P :lol:

Yeah I've noticed recently that females contend with the males more often in juvenile races so that is a wonder.

Joel Rosario rode Yoshida to victory in the Woodward Stakes at Saratoga last time out, but with Rosario committed to Accelerate for the Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs, the connections of Yoshida needed a replacement.

They went to a familar face.

Jose Ortiz, who rode Yoshida to victory in the Turf Classic at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day earlier this year, and who was aboard Yoshida for his fifth-place finish in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June, will be reunited with the horse, trainer Bill Mott said Wednesday.

"He won a Grade 1 on him in the spring and rode him at Royal Ascot," Mott said from his barn at Saratoga. "He knows him and he's ridden him."

More on all that and all the rest of the Breeders' Cup Classic news to be posted later at www.drf.com
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
